Despite all the ice on the road and living on a hill I got a little cabin fever yesterday (I felt like Huell in BrBa) and drove to Whataburger. Our food supply was also running a little low and we just wanted to eat something different. The drive there wasn’t really bad, but I couldn’t quite make it up the hill back home and had to park about 200 yards from the house. Despite all that they got my order wrong.
The Obama Christmas card is a bit three-dimensional this year, it’s as pop-up.
I have a lot of friends (and one spouse) that are Baylor fans, and I’m happy for them as they got to see their football team do something they never thought would occur in a hundred years. It’s a great feeling to experience, especially the first time around and you never know if something like this will even happen again, and I hope it’s something they cherish. And what a way to close out the last season in their old stadium in dramatic fashion with OU coming through with an upset earlier in the day to set the drama up.
Ohio State has played a really easy schedule to make it to a BCS bowl, but I still think Baylor had a much easier schedule. The Big XII was extremely weak this year and of course they couldn’t help that, and even though they did beat Oklahoma who beat OK State, OU just isn’t their typical self. I was hoping that Baylor could prove me wrong by playing a real caliber team and that never really happened, and once again the easy-schedule-gods gifted them again by scheduling the University of Central Florida at the Fiesta Bowl. Keep in mind UCF squeaked by SMU on Saturday. It would be nice if Baylor were matched against a real caliber team at the Fiesta Bowl to give my Baylor friends something to really rejoice about, though winning it anyways I’m sure will make them happy.
Baylor’s first three games next year are against SMU, Northwestern State (Louisiana), and Buffalo.
FSU-MSU and Auburn-Alabama would be the first round matches if the college football playoff started this year.
I actually think A&M is the best football team in Texas.

I don’t know much about Joe Jamail, other than Barry the LiberallyLean.com guy has a strong dislike for him and the guy is a very wealthy lawyer and the UT field is named after him. So I decided to do some research, and for being one of the richest men in the world, his website looks like something out of 1996.

‘CBS Sunday Morning’ had a nice piece about Freemsons that deals away with a bunch of the mysteries and suspicions. My father was one for over 50 years and one of my closest friends is a Mason. You can watch the segment here.
